Job description

Become a Care Assistant and help children receive the care they need at home!

We’re actively seeking an experienced Care Assistant to join our team in Bridgwater and the surroundings. In this role, you’ll work as part of a close-knit, collaborative health and social care team, delivering care in the home of children with complex care needs. Without support from people like you, these individuals may live a life in specialist units or hospitals, rather than in their own home.

You’ll follow each individual’s care plan, playing a key role in supporting them with daily tasks including clinical requirements, medication support, personal care, PEG care, posture care, social activities, and any additional services required.

Day shifts: 08:00-16:00 (Monday-Friday).

Night shifts: 20:00-08:00.

Employee perks

  • A competitive pay package of £16.59 per hour, including holiday pay
  • Get paid as soon as you finish a shift with instant Flexi Pay
  • Fixed hours on a rota basis
  • Access to Newcross World, our app-based training platform
  • Access to NHS registered GPs and mental health support with virtual appointments
  • Free DBS and uniform

Flexi Pay!

Flexi Pay gives healthcare staff the chance to immediately access up to 50% of the value of their completed shifts - even on weekends and bank holidays! All managed via our bespoke app, HealthForceGo.

Could you be our next caregiving hero?

You’ll already have a minimum of 3 months of professional experience under your belt and hold a valid Moving and Handling certificate. We do also accept candidates with experience of caring for a loved one. The right to work in the UK is a must. As well as excellence in care, we also need you to demonstrate our core values of positivity, trustworthiness, respectfulness, understanding, kindness, and calmness on every shift.

Access to your own vehicle would be beneficial but isn't essential.

Please note: To work in a care home in England from 11 November 2021, the post holder is required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 unless clinically exempt.
